Played Saturday, May 26th 2007
LI paid their first Saturday visit to Shipston and imposed themselves on the home side from the off.
Neil Hudson (6-1-19-2) took two wickets in the first over, both caught by keeper James Clarke. With skipper Hedderman run out and the dangerous Harper (20) gone with score at 38 it was left to veteran Bishop (20) and Cox (15) to take the total to 73 when both fell.
Stephen Rawbone (5-1-21-3) and Martin Clark (6-1-14-3) disposed of the tail in quick time, aided by two more catches keeper Clarke, for an all out total of 96 in only 35 overs. Brian Phillips (10-4-16-1) only conceding 16 runs in his 10 overs.
After the loss of an early wicket George Insall (30) and Aaron Jones (31) advanced the score to 75 in drizzle before both were dismissed with the winning post in sight. LI got home by 7 wickets in the 25th over before the rains came despite 2-26 from M Schaus.
